This week, the moon entered the "Full Wolf Moon" phase created by Native Americans to track the seasons. "The early Native Americans did not record time by using the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Many tribes kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months," according to the Farmers' Almanac.  "January is the month in which the moon looks the smallest due to the apogee of the earth's orbit, where it is at the greatest distance from the earth," according to space.com. This photo was taken on Anaqua Avenue in north Victoria.
